assuming id= parses the way id parses in xhtml, this would be bad
because it would mean i could not write:

I <x id="read-2">read</x> it to Jim. She <x id="read-2">read</x> it to Jim.

I'd rather <x class="read simple past">

Ignoring all the other technical problems, support for multiple
classes is I believe a theoretically solved problem.

Personally, I like http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/route#Pronunciation
as a problem word. I speak en-US and you can see that we get two
pronunciations; I use both.
